, sequester, the debt ceiling, all of those issues seem to be moving out later into the year. so as a result the impediments that were slowing the economy down over the last couple of quarters we think will result in better economic growth. the equity market is starting to sense that. i think to some degree that is some of the reasons why the markets ignored washington and ignored sandy so far this year and is up 10% or so. >> that is why you have such a bullish forecast for the s&p. you are calling for it to end the year at 16.60. it is all going to play out pretty strongly. >> we think corporate earnings will chug along may increase about $108 full year for the s&p. we think we will get a little multiple expansion from 14 to 15 times as treasury yields continue to work higher. that will drive out of bounds and into stocks. we think the equity market ends up with a 15% to 20% positive return for the year. >> that is a good way to turn to stocks that are going to perform well. you have len on the big board as your top pick. you reported the blowout earnings this year. the stock has been on a
to be two-pronged. you are going to have a debt ceiling debate when funding for the government runs out. president and white house wants to have a deal with some kind of tax increase and house republicans do not want to include that in any kind of package. they don't want the debt increases limited. secondly, there is talk about a grand bargain to get a new budget in place. >> gregg: how do you handicap that? >> i think this is one of better chances we've seen in a while. >> gregg: why, because the president is paying attention to his poll numbers which is dropping considerably? >> i think he is paying attention to congress. first term he ran against them for reelection campaign. he didn't want much to do with congress. he didn't work with them or invited them up to the white house. this is the first time we have soon signs of reaching across the 16 blocks to capitol hill. i think house republicans have come to the point where they really see that the american public is sick of what i would call crisis fatigue. every three to five months there is some crisis in congress and go down to t
long? >> until september 30th i believe. >> and then there will be a debt ceiling fight in may. >> bill: i was getting to that. >> that's right. and republicans said if you are going to raise the debt ceiling they still want the same amount of cuts to go through. president obama has made it very clear to house republicans he is not going to negotiate on debt ceiling, just pass it clean, but they are probably going to put up a fight. >> bill: democrats last time made a lot of political hay, by taking the ryan budget and hanging it republican's necks. and they are going to do that this time? >> i am told they are making at it central focus of the 2014 campaign. however, republicans -- remember what happened last time. and they are trying to get out in front now. this budget balances the budget in ten years. they are confidence the balanced budget message will resinate with the american people. and so there are the first television ads using the balanced budget message as their key point in new york and florida. >> bill: interesting they would pick new york and f
these constant crises, the , so that made another issue. and now we have the debt ceiling and on and on and on. it never ends. people get concerned. you look at consumer confidence, and it has since passed continued to decline. a function of not knowing what is going on in the we shouldr, i guess say, in the government, in terms of what they're doing with budget and taxes and everything else. host: we will talk with april -- reporter on the hill. ,et's go to fredericksburg virginia, republican, also a federal worker. caller: hi. i am with the department of defense, and we have done it numerous options on how to deal with the sequester. the department of defense has been hours with the sequester. it has certainly affected the tempo of our work. i think it is going to severely affect defense workers morale in a lot of ways. this is really ridiculous. both senatorsto from june -- virginia. unless they fix this things, i am not going to vote for them. atm looking very closely how my congressman is handling the situation. anything to doing fix it, i will try and vote him out, also. the congressmen
reforms and any debt ceiling deal she says republicans want to eliminate medicare and privatise social security. >>> if the goal is to have them wither on the vine or reduced in a way that does not meet their purpose, then those are fighting words. >> fighting words. >>> and some very strong words on the floor of the house yesterday, thursday, rather, from minnesota republican congresswoman michelle bachmann about repealing the affordable care act. >> that's why we're here. because we're saying let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. let's care about people. >> and that's your morning's dish of scrambled politics. >>> and bill karins is here. let's love people, bill. do you have a good weather report for us? >> no. i should just turn around and leave and go back home. i wish i was a bear and could hibernate and wait until it's spring. wait, it is spring. the bear is very confused. so is punxsutawney phil. that was a bust. let's talk about the wind chill. half the country has a whipped chill
for the upcoming battle over the next round of negotiations on the debt ceiling, which i think both republicans in the house and the democrats in the senate and the white house are going to say, you know, again try to find -- could they reach a grand bargain, any kind of bargain not only to raise the debt ceiling but bring down the deficit long term. the democrat budget, of course, talks about a big tax hike over ten years of about $1 trillion. republicans say they're not going to do that. they want to roll back obama care. these are the two outside extreme positions. that's where we're at now. going forward can they come together and find some middle ground? >> weigh in on that, lauren. is there really a chance for reconciling these two extreme budgets? >> i think david kind of nailed it here. when it comes to the budgets, they're just a little bit too far, but this budget process isn't a waste of time. i think it's promising that they went through regular order. this is something that the senate hasn't done. they haven't passed a budget this a long time. i think what we'll see is this may ope
is killing 87 americans a day? not the debt ceiling? it's gun violence, and it's unrestricted access to guns by criminals and the mentally ill, thanks to the capitol managements and the nras of the world who are arming criminals and -- and controlling our hard-fought democracy. we have got to take your democracy back. there are way more of us than there are of those lunatics in the nra, and their benefactors in the gun industry. but we have to hold our congress people accountable. >> michael: it seems, john noot to sort of douse your flames on this, it seems like they are calling. thanks goodness there is bloomberg to counter these people for the first time. isn't the moment going away now? i know we said that about gabby giffords, and i thought that was going to be the moment and it clearly wasn't, now i thought this was a no-brainer. what has to happen? >> i'm afraid something far worse than newtown. as we get further and further away from newtown, we're seeing even the democrats in the senate shy away from assault weapons and ammunition clips, there were 20 be
to medicare as well. a lot of differences and we have another deadline coming up. the debt ceiling will have to be revisited this summer, alex. >> looking forward to that. >> reporter: yeah, we all are. >> thank you very much, kristen welker. >>> joining me right now, andy sullivan and ann palmer. ann, i'll begin with you. the president is back from the middle east. the reviews are out there. how are you getting the word in terms of how he was perceived? >> i think one of the key things you can look at is what the israeli press put out in the days following his first steps and throughout the entire visit and it was a resounding applause. he got very good praise from them. obviously from what he was trying to do was take that frosty relationship with benjamin netanyahu and try to piece it back together. he did that. it was exactly what he needed to do. there wasn't a lot of meat on the bones in terms of policy but from what he set out to do, that was kind of a mission accomplished. >> i have to say i get a chuckle. he said shalom. andy, the big picture there. what did the president accomplish
. obviously it could change. that or the debt ceiling deadline coming up in the spring. we don't know if we'll get a reprieve turned into a pardon. >> thank you, sir. >>> the governor of colorado today signed new laws that regulate the sales of guns. hours earlier somebody gunned down one of his state's top law enforcement officials. the man who heads the bureau of prisons, opens the door and he's shot dead. connection? the latest from both ends of this important story coming up. max and penny keptur bookstore exciting and would always come to my rescue. but as time passed, i started to notice max just wasn't himself. and i knew he'd feel better if he lost a little weight. so i switched to purina cat chow healthy weight formula. i just fed the recommended amount... and they both loved the taste. after a few months max's "special powers" returned... and i got my hero back. purina cat chow healthy weight. after a few months max's "special powers" returned... with an intuitive motion activated lid and seat,ad bold makes sure you'll never have to ask him again. >> shepard: the head of the color
fight over the debt ceiling late they are spring, into the early summer. >> but tucked away in that continuing resolution are some hidden items on guns. making permanent some of the restrictions on the federal government's ability to regulate guns. they're not the major ones, but they were tucked away in there. when people aren't looking at the continuing president, the nra is still holding sway. >> well and andrea, you know, in the wake of newtown, i think we all grappled with the possibility that the politics surrounding gun control had been fundamentally changed. i would say what's happened in the months since then, stripping the assault weapons ban out, skepticism about background checks and high-capacity magazines, suggests that newtown may have changed things for a time, but it's possible it did not change broadly how the public thinks about gun rights, gun restrictions, you know, and et cetera. >> chris cillizza, thank you very much, see you later. and meanwhile, speaking of guns in colorado, the manhunt continues and widens for the unidentified gunman who murdered st
was that the senate democrats had to pass a budget in order to get a debt ceiling increase. they'll pass a budget. the house passed a budget. in theory what they're supposed to do is reconcile the two of them, come up with a compromise and make that budget the law. that's not going to happen, this was the end. this bill is going to die and there's no implication for keystone, excel, abortion or anything else. it's symbolic. >> quoting myself, it's a statement of priorities. and the fact that the republicans are still trying to litigate the issue of the affordable care act, still talking about contraception, still talking about a woman's right to choose, it's a testament, those are not winning issues for the republican party. i want to talk to you, josh, you have a great column in bloomberg view, talking about republicans and their deficit amnesia. michael writes in the "daily beast," the gop is advancing three crucial lies, that we have to balance the budget, that public investment at this point is irresponsible and that if we do slash spending and balance the budget, jobs will come. it's all non
ceiling to be increased because he was spending so much money. republican said, ok, we will raise the debt ceiling for the country does not default, but only if you agree for a dollar for dollar reduction in spending over the next decade. and so, yet $2.50 trillion of spending restraint -- not real cuts but spending less than obama had hoped. in washington that is called a cut. if you wanted 10 of something and you only got eight of something, you say i got cut two. if you actually walk away with eight. so, that was a $2.50 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it has not happened yet. we have several problems facing us. the trillion dollars in the obamacare tax increases that hit this decade, that begin to hit now. oddly enough, the president and the democrats in the house and senate decided to put the tax increases, the bulk of them, after the 2012 elections. so, everybody voted and now the tax increases hit. it is not helpful for the economy and i think it is going to be unpleasant for voters. from ron is up next watertown, south dakota. democrats' line. caller: thank you fo
years. under the debt ceiling deal of january, if the senate doesn't pass the budget by april 15, senators would have the paychecks withheld. you would be in a embarrassing headlines of senator having the pay withheld for not doing the job. that's a political hot potato. maybe there's truth. for moran he wants to have a certain number of cosponsors as well worried about impact of on air traffic controller by the sequestration that went in to effect march 1st. the $85 million cuts across the board have pretty much cut federal spending. >> on the cr, the rest of 2013 assuming the senate wraps up the work in the next day or so, how quickly is the house likely to take it up and pass it? >> talking house appropriation chairman was saying it's likely that unless terrorist some last minute changes or amendments he doesn't know about it the house will quickly move to bring the senate cr unchanged to the floor under a closed rule. and the house can move with lightening speed compared to the senate. we should see a vote quickly before they leave for easter recess. i think it's clear in the
: there are all kinds of fiscal issues with the budget, with sequester and the debt ceiling, not far off. have you offered a number of ways that you think the federal government could be cutting back. your office is good at looking at budgets and plans. you have note aid number of things that could have been done n. liu of closing the white house to public visitors, but did you have bipartisan crossover. >> i had bipartisan crossover because they're getting ready to run for election. there is a game play in the senate. this administration wants to show the american public that we can't cut $44 billion between now and september 30 without them experiencing massive pain. they have every intention to make it hurt to get the point that we need to spends every penny we are spending. which is absolutely ludicrous. it's a shame they are doing that because a lot of things -- we are going to have air traffic control towers shut down. they are not shut down because they are too expensive. on average, they cost $wo.3 million less per year to operate. they are shut down to come back with unionized employees i
are in the debates at the sequester rehabbed and will be getting an a debt ceiling minutes later run. there's a lot of claims to be made the president said we just can't even cut the growth of spending because if we do that's going to hurt economic growth. you look at the president's statement overtime. if you go back and actually read the presidential debate with john mccain over and over again, obama promised to make a campaign speech does the same thing. i have some new proposals, but i'm going to more than offset them by other cuts and he promised a smaller government that we have great then. now when we got to the week or two after the election we start talking about the stimulus. it will be for one, maybe two years. we had a 21% increase during the first years of the obama administration over and above the solution. that dollar increase in spending adjusted for inflation is argentinian priest standing we had during world war ii, which is pretty phenomenal when you think about how much the country no place to go and fight world war ii there. this is larger for inflation. rather than the stimul
't and jumped out at me. one of the things we heard going back to the debt ceiling negotiations in the summer of 2011, john boehner saying in effect the president played loosesy and -- lucy and yanked football and was not keeping his word on obligations he said he would undertake. i wonder if joe biden going back to offer a at this time for at that time argument? would be interesting to for reporters would follow up. what were the five occasions? what were the specific deals and how did republicans back out at them? bill: what date did it happen and what did republicans supposedly promise you and how did they renege on that. >> right. bill: here is john boehner, 10 days ago, similar topic here. listen to the speaker. >> republicans want to balance the budget. the president doesn't. republicans want to solve our long-term debt problem. the president doesn't. we want to unlock our energy resources to put more americans back to work. the president doesn't. bill: he also said it will take more than dinner dates and phone calls. and that goes back to your point about the charm offensive. like, wha
when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial crieses, september 11th. just to name some major events. and that debt ceiling debacle did more to disrupt the public's confidence in the integrity of the political process in washington. so you have to make your elected officials accountable. have you social immediate yafment you can build an online community snainsly and you get a message multiplire. by doing that you can find out where your law makers are. are they in session five days a week? they should be working. these are things you can be doing now. these are simple solutions but concrete ones. how can you deal with the issues of our day in two and a half days a week. t
early august will you vote to raise the nation's debt ceiling? that's when it has to be raised. >> i'm not going to get into what we will or will not do. i do believe that we can make sure the default is not going to happen. i'm not really worried about us defeating. i think we can give the authority to the president to prevent default. i have to tell you, wolf. we can't keep running up deficits like this. it will damage our economy deeply and people are saying that we don't have a crisis on the horizon. of course we do. we've got a debt that is on a tear right now. if the debt takes off like it's projected to do, it's not only hurting our economy today but destroying it for the next generation. we just can't sit around and be complicit with that. that means we have to do something about it. >> let me get your thoughts on a couple sensitive issues coming before congress. immigration reform. do you support a pathway to citizenship for the 11 or 12 million illegal immigrants in the united states? >> well, i think we can get the comprehensive immigration reform. i support reform. i supp
: yeah, how long? >> it would be only for a few months, so we still face the debt ceiling issue very shortly. >> bill: that comes up next and i think this extension goes until september if i recall seeing -- >> that's right. the end of the fiscal year uh-huh. >> bill: right. congress woman judy chew who represents the seat formerly hell by our good friend hilda solis. who often has come in studio with us. we look forward to seeing you come in the studio with us some day as well. on the issue of immigration reform, even rand paul came out and didn't go as far as the president, but he did say -- put himself in the camp of those who think it's time for immigration reform, dealing with that issue with those of us from southern california have been dealing with for a long time. are you optimistic about chances? >> i am optimistic in this time of people thinking of us being at a partisan strangle hold there is cooperation here. i was very encouraged about the work put out, i do believe that the immigration reform bill will move award. >> bill: if it moves ahead and r
and the debt ceiling. it seemed like he was a on a roll in the early weeks. >> right, jon, but that may establish the point which is, that if you start out with a lower level of popularity than presidents traditionally started out, their second term, you have further to fall, to rise in the polls if you're numbers go up but you have less to fall if, below to get that below that 50% mark. if you start out with a highly partisan, politicized electorate they will really come down on you like a ton of bricks if you do anything they don't like, which is a point that nate silver made in a recent analysis on the polling drop. i think coming right after this, the president's, what seems to be a very successful trip to the middle east just shows you that the american people are focused on the economy and they're focused on economic uncertainty. they're not focused on foreign policy as much as some of us would like, they really care about whether or not he's going to deliver any economic prosperity in the second term. jon: as we look at that video of the president shaking hands with world leaders
